And also, sending a wire through the lcp points might not be the best Idea.

Just my opinions though.

I agree that it is not a good idea for grounding reasons. The insulation on the wire could tear, the board is fairly rough on the edges.
|It aslo might be hard to get a wire through the lcp if you've got pin headers installed|
Gamingguru, there are more LPC points than there are pins on the header, but I am still with you in the don't do it department.

I will check as soon as I get a chance and report back if someone does not post sooner.

but aren't the odds just as high of the D0 wire coming
from the bottom of the board could short running across the bottom of the board as it is to thread it up thru one of the unused LPC holes?
If the wire has a crack in it it will just as easly short wherever it is run.
Running it up thru the lpc makes for a very short wire, and lessons the risk of getting pinched when you reinstall the MB.
lol, like I said just my 2 cents

|Again, I have not tested but have found that grounding D0 to the LPC ground does not work.|
Grouding D0 to the LPC Ground (Pin 2) does work.
|I would surmise that the D0 is not an actual ground but a floating one.|
D0 is not a ground, nor is it a floating point. It's a signal line. Tying it to ground forces the signal to Low.
